Quote of the Day

Mouth, meet brain. Brain, meet mouth. You guys should get to know each other a little better.

Lauren Shippen, The Infinite Noise

If you live in Washington

It’s the perfect time to go to Bow Hill and get strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I can’t tell you what to do, but it seems to me like acquiring tasty berries is always a good thing.

A little more keyboards in my life

After getting my husband to watch me fumble my sad way through some online typing tests, we started to realize the problem with my typing pain was less with my fingers striking the keys and more with the ways I was bending my wrists to reach the keyboard.

(If you are curious, we figured out that if I type like I am on a laptop and trying to avoid a non-existent touchpad, my wrists are beautifully unbent.)

It’s looking like a split keyboard is the way to go for me. Which is hilarious, because I’ve been trying to learn how to touch type since 1986 and it’s still a work in progress. I love this Dygma Raise keyboard but the price is….abhorrent? outrageous? logic-defying? Not good.

The End.

That’s all I have for today. I’m finding that reading The Uninhabitable Earth for novel research is maxing my brain out for learning and pondering new things.

It’s also really fucking depressing, so I need a very big mental well to contain all that in without just being a nihilistic mess. So that’s fun.
